Program Notes

This Concerto Grosso was commissioned by the Kyo-En Executive Committee, and it was premiered at the Kyo-En V in 2003 by heKawagoe Solhwa Wind Ensemble with Masato Sato conducting. Composer Masamichi Amano write this about his music:

“I know the conductor and the band inside out, so I enjoyed composing this work very much, thinking about their personalities. The piece features the sax section, and the performance style is characterized by interplay between a vibrant jazz quartet and a solid pops wind ensemble.”
